Conditions about Todd Chrisley’s stay at the FPC Pensacola, a federal prison located in western Florida, have come to life following a medication mix-up. Chrisley’s attorney Jay Surgent said that Chrisley was the victim of ‘a very cruel, broken and inhumane system.’
“The medical department is in shambles,” he revealed, accusing staffers of mishandling “medicine intended and belonging to another inmate.”
Surgent’s accusations do not just stay within his client’s own personal experiences. According to Surgent the medical staff has also allegedly messed up in administering insulin to a non-diabetic patient. According to the attorney, “the administration of this medicine rendered them unconscious and they were rushed to the hospital.”
“These types of mix-ups and mistakes are inexcusable and just another indication of how terrible these conditions are and have become,” he said.
Chrisley is currently serving what originally was a 12 year sentence which since has been reduced down to 10 years. Him and his wife, Julie Chrisley, have been serving their own sentences after being found guilty of bank and tax fraud offenses.
Medicinal mixups are not the only injustice allegedly occurring within the federal facility. According to Chrisley’s attorney, prisoners who follow Islam have been denied their rights to practice their faith and engage in worship.
According to Todd’s attorney, “the leadership at FPC Pensacola have decided these inmates should be required to work during their scheduled worship times. So their right to practice their freedom of expression and religion is being denied so that they can provide free labor to the camp and the BOP.”
